Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Selling Bonds To Raise Money
- Tesla expects to raise nearly $1.8bn (£1.4bn) by selling “junk” bonds to private investors – even more than the electric car-maker aimed for when it announced the offering this month.
- The firm said the money will keep its balance sheet steady as it ramps up manufacturing of its newest car.
- Tesla aims to make 5,000 of its mass market Model 3 a week by the end of this year.
- It has estimated it is already spending about $100m a week to hit that target.
- On 4 August Tesla said was looking to raise $1.5bn by selling bonds, but said on Friday it now expected to raise $1.77bn from the sale.
